I like interruptions, of any kind, especially from my own life, because we have such a tendency—something stronger than a tendency, actually–to do the same things all the time. Kierkegaard wrote about repetition as the greatest human good, because it was close to holiness. Yet to me it is so strange that I do the same thing over and over, that I take the same route to the grocery store or when I walk home—it’s intolerable. I want interruptions, I want things to be different all the time.
